a)the stories of the buybull regarding creation were inconsistent with evolution.
b) the lack of proof of a god
c) the reality that the god of the buybull is a cruel autocratic tyrant.
D)the realization that the buybull has many inconsistencies
E) The fact that the buybull is plagiarized from many different sources.
I prefer agnosticism...simply because anything else would be self serving, and NOT based on any sort of real "knowledge"-because the REAL truth is, we do NOT know.

But then at times, I have seen things that have inspired, there is something definetly GREATER, at work in the universe-than the sub par, animalistic, low level action of mere mortal humankind.

Why are christians so down on Hitler and the Nazi party? Yes they killed a few million people but the god they worship killed, and demanded the death of, ten times the people Hitler killed so they must be on the same side.
Here is the fact. The christian cult, a small minority of the population, wants to separate themselves from reality. So lets give them Texas and they can do as they please in their schools with their children and we can live in the rest of the USA with equal rights for every one.
Of course we would accept their children when they escape from the asylum.
Stop trying to twist and distort History just to suit your lame azz agenda of hatred of that which YOU (either) actually do NOT know.

Just admit the TRUTH-you do NOT know.

It's not that hard to say....although admitting to ourselves that we do NOT know "everything" (like some lameazzez would like to believe they do) is a little more difficult, it brings GREAT REAL freedom with it!

Next time, try MORE reading comprehension-and (far) LESS judgement of others.

You might not look as ignorant then.

Adult reading comprehension (at least 9th grade) required though.
So, you have never read the bible. OK most of the christian cult's leaders do not want you to read the bible any ways.
But before you make claims about your god you should read the bible because you know nothing about it.

So the fact stands; evolution is not a religion. Thanks for admitting that.

WRONG. No fact at all to what you jsut typed, only your mere opinion.

MY Opinion however-is different-based on definative meanings of the following words-

Obvioulsy for many, evolution is their "religion" per say.

Or there wouldn't be a "Society" of it.

Religion:

Religions, by which are meant the modes of divine
worship proper to different tribes, nations, or
communities, and based on the belief held in common
by the members of them severally.... There is no
living religion without something like a doctrine.
On the other hand, a doctrine, however elaborate,
does not constitute a religion.--C. P. Tiele
(Encyc.
Brit.).

Community:

2. A body of people having common rights, privileges, or
interests, or living in the same place under the same laws
and regulations; as, a community of monks. Hence a number
of animals living in a common home or with some apparent
association of interests.
[1913 Webster]

Society (See also: Community)

NOUN (4)

1. an extended social group having a distinctive cultural and economic organization;

2. a formal association of people with similar interests;
- Example: "he joined a golf club"
- Example: "they formed a small lunch society"

See the common thread there yet?

Actually I've read the Bible cover to cover-and then some (including other works of literature of various faiths) Don't you ever get tired of merely attacking others that have their own opinions, thus leading you to post ignorantly?

Just because I do NOT hold the same ugly, hateful perspective of the book as a whole, as you do, does not mean I do not know anything about it.

It matters not one iota to me, what these other "cult" leaders you rant on about may wish for me not to read-I live in America, where reading is a Constitutional RIGHT. Personally, I have never encountered anyone that even wished to tell me what I could or could not read-nor would I desire to, as I would find such a type of person to be STEEPED in Ignorance, and I have a low tolerance for willfull Ignorance, I call it a personal flaw of mine own.

You however, Might want to try putting down your pitchfork of hate, and you might feel better. why, you might even be able to sa something nice about others rights to individual opinions(besides just your own) then too!!

I did not attack your opinion, I attacked your lie. You stated that the god of the bible killed no one, never condoned slavery or rape, never ordered the death of children, all of that is in your bible. You are a poor liar.
Shall I post the verses from your bible for you?

I stated MY "god" does not promote ANY of what you mention.
Maybe YOURS does, but MINE does NOT.

MY "God" is one of GOOD, just and right ways...not hate, deception or vileness.

You have one thing RIGHT though-I am a "poor liar" because I am NOT, simply because I have no need to "lie" about anything.

Don't like THAT,too bad for you too- that's YOUR problem as well-not mine.

So you can keep your twisted and distorted judgements of hate on and torwards others that you have NO clue about-to yourself, and may your karma return to you ten fold of your OWN ugliness of them.

As with 7th trump that one has nothing. Although the religie does claim to be a college educated nazi, lmao and it shows. Also like our fav troll that appears on here from time to time, the self proclaimed educated nazi(lmao) claims it is not a religie but for some reason never calls them on their bull excrement, a liar? Yep, a self proclaimed college educated lying nazi. Just look at its reaction to my posts, the truth is for sure a religies enemy, along with reason and logic.

FACT:
To state that anyone "worships" evolution as a "religion" shines a spotlight on the caliber of scrutiny by which most Christians conduct "Bible Study." It is on par with their inability to comprehend that there is no such thing as "a belief in the religion of atheism." There seems to be some construct of thought by which many of the devout cannot accept that others need not process information within a theological or ideological framework.
